Are your quiet times ever dry?
Do you feel like the Bible should be more nourishing to you than what you are currently receiving?
Do you need some “juice” to get your daily walk with God into a run?
My friend Lara and her writing partner and friend, Katie, have written a helpful and readable e-book to help answer these such questions. There are times when every woman feels like that their quiet times just aren’t what they should be. Maybe you are a mother of young children and its hard for you to even get in 5 minutes a day (while you are taking a shower, usually). Or maybe you a mom of teenagers and you pray for them constantly. Maybe you are married and you find your role as a wife to be overwhelming. Maybe you are single and you are looking for direction.
God’s Word has the answers to all of these life situations and you CAN get the most out of God’s Word. God’s Word is sufficient for all your needs and His Word is true.
Maybe, you are reading this, and you’ve never had a quiet time. You don’t know how. Katie and Lara address this issue – then take that deeper. Its not just a scheduling how-to, its a heart how-to. So, this book is good for you – wherever you are in your journey with Christ.
Hear these words: “I wake up wanting to hold the reigns of control and set my agenda. Before my feet hit the floor my mind takes off. I have to start the day low. I am the needy one – empty-handed and thirsty for His presence. I arise from my slumber into His day – His plan. I’m the one who slept all night while He never wearied.”
Ladies – this book has great insight, honest feelings, and great resources to help you journey on and savor the Living Water of Christ through the Words of the Bible.

My favorite verse at the moment is Philippians 4:6-8. I have it on my mirror in the bathroom for me to see every morning as I get ready. Whenever I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed with life, I just need to glance up at the words on the mirror and I’m reminded of how in control my God is and I’m to worry about nothing in this life and trust in His sovereignty!!
Those are good – we both need those!
Jeremiah 32:17, a powerful reminder to me that Nothing I am facing is too difficult for God. Thanks for the book ladies.

My favorite passage is in Matthew 6. Do not be anxious.I tend to be a little anxious and worry. I have all my life. This passage has been a constant reminder to me. My favorite part is in verse 32. “For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you”. It took me a while to really understand that if I’m seeking God in everything, the desires of my heart will be what He wants for me, not what my flesh wants.
My favorite verse right now is kind of an odd one, but is really good for me!
Prov 19:18 Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.
It’s my encouragement that disciplining my 1 year old is good and it keeps me from being lazy about it. If I don’t discipline him now, I am making it easier for him to die because of his sin.
Glad how the word meets us where we are Lauren! See you in a few weeks!
I love Jeremiah 17:7-8, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water,that sends out its roots by the stream,and does not fear when heat comes,for its leaves remain green,and is not anxious in the year of drought,for it does not cease to bear fruit.” It reminds me of how I should be rooted in Christ and his gospel, and it is also my prayer for my children to grow into those ‘rooted trees who bear fruit’ as well.
Oh, it’s hard to pick! Lately, I think it would be Psalm 143:8 “Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.”
Thanks for taking the time to review Savoring Living Water!
